Overview: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2908 square feet, 545 sq. ft. 1-car garage and workshop
This 1925 Craftsman was completely re-designed and expanded, delivering warm, period style with the current amenities and modern open living spaces. Cohesive in design throughout, the original floorplan and a large add-on include Brazilian cherry floors, thick window moldings, art deco glass door knobs, solid wood doors, and classic wainscoting. Wonderful!
From the front, a brick walkway curves about the colorful landscaping to a quintessential craftsman front porch. Inside, a classic foyer opens to the spacious living and dining rooms—featuring original built-in cabinetry and a bay window to enjoy the goings-on outside. This front portion of the home includes two pristine bedrooms with uniquely large closets that are served by an updated stylish bath.
Achieving high-end form and function, the remodeled kitchen with casual dining area implements:
- Granite counters and cherry cabinetry
- Butcher-block island with a five-burner Dacor range
- Stainless steel appliances
- A farm sink under a charming sunny window
- Built-in home organizer space
The kitchen flows down into the great room—a large family/media room warmed by a gas fireplace—and two sets of French doors provide seamless flow to the large all level backyard. This exceptional indoor-outdoor flow is ideal for patio dining, outdoor play, or an evening with friends around the modern concrete fire pit with built-in bench seating. The lot totals 10,000 square feet and even includes a large detached 1-car garage with a fully functional workshop, that could be a possible ADU, measuring 545 sq. ft.
The floorplan finishes with an upstairs master suite retreat, with a dramatic high ceiling, gas fireplace, French doors with a Juliette balcony that overlooks the serene back garden, huge walk-in closet/changing room, and a large bathroom with double sinks, walk-in shower, and jet-spa tub. Luxurious! The master closet could easily be another bedroom/nursery or home office and still have plenty of room for a walk-in closet.
Some of the noted amenities with the expansion in 2006 are a new foundation, electrical, plumbing, windows, doors, roof… and include a basement area for additional storage, wine cellar, two furnaces, air conditioning, alarm and more…

Dramatic, hillside contemporary homes, many of which feature expansive bay and canyon views, are the hallmark of the Bayo Vista neighborhood.
